About Briarwood

Absolut Brooklyn
The newest addition to the Absolut Vodka “City Series” is the Absolut Brooklyn, which is a Red Apple and Ginger flavored vodka.  This has got to be the coolest looking bottle so far in the series.  Designed by Brooklyn native Spike Lee, the new Absolut package depicts a brownstone stoop reminiscent of the one where Lee grew up.  As always, Absolut makes a charitable donation to each featured city.  This time they are giving $50,000 of the profits from Absolut Brooklyn to Habitat for Humanity in New York City. 
Most importantly, this stuff is really, really tasty!  We tried it a few different ways and really loved it.  Personally, I like to keep it simple when it comes to cocktails.  No frilly stuff for this lady!  Mixing the Absolut Brooklyn with ginger ale over ice is super refreshing and super delicious.  We also splashed some Brooklyn into some Mimosas on Father’s Day…and as luck would have it, it was awesome!  Of course, Absolut always has a wealth of cocktail recipes for all of their flavors.  A few good ones that are simple to make and perfect for a hot 4th of July weekend are:

Stoop Party
1 shot of Absolut Brooklyn
Cranberry Juice
Ginger Ale
Over ice with a fresh lime squeeze.

Sunset Twist
1 ½ oz. Absolut Brooklyn
½ oz. banana flavored rum
